GS1 2017- Questions properly attempted and expected marks

Due to the highly backbreaking (Mrunal TM) move by UPSC at GS1, it has apparently become a deciding factor with the optional of course. Since the expectations of GS1 ate highly scattered on forum, please post your expected score in GS1 on this thread. We can evolve what could be a decent score.

    i don't think commission will go for liberal marking like last year . It is very senti about rising cutoffs as we saw in prelims this year .
    3 prelims ; 2 mains* : 0* interview

  • how r marks awarded based on 2015 marking
  • how r marks awarded based on 2015 marking

    Bahut strict tha ..baba re baba..ram rahim baba :mrgreen:
    prelims 3 ...mains 2+3rd 2017...interview 1(no rank)

  • based on my friends marks of 2015 and 16 i found on an avg 15 mark variation in essay and gs papers and a 30 mark variation in optional papers. this almost caused an increase in 100 marks.
    i may be wrong also.
    so guessing that 1 mark variation per question if based on 2015 valuation.

  • How is prediction going to help here? How do you guys estimate your marks? And howsoever you do that, how is it able to help you people?

    The only way one can be sure that he/she is not clearing Mains is if the person has not attempted 3-4 questions in most papers. If you have attempted all or left max 2, then I cannot find anyway of predicting an interview call.

  • Shoddily attempted = 4 questions of 15 marks each. Messed up time management.
    1 15 marker half wrong (communalism one - wrote about partition instead of independent India)
    Malay peninsula wrong. Juno will fetch 1 mark since I wrote it is for Jupiter.
    Did not leave any question blank though.

    Last year score = 119
    This year expected on last year's marking = 105 :cry:

    Last time I made a map in south China sea and a diagram of air masses.

    Could've drawn a couple of more maps but I was short on time, don't know why.

    NO . It was a booby trap . statement was of monsoon and question asking was monsoon climate . i wrote 7-8 points guess . first 2 were of explaining monsoon features ( variability ,dry spells etc ) but realised after 2 and wrote rest on " monsoon climate " .

  • If so then ok or else it would account to 15marks.
    In the discussion faculty stated that we shouldn't write abt monsoons.
